Avatar f tn it can also be important if there was use of anticholesterol drugs/statins before interferon and how long gmr: she has reported mild sides in another post but i d not consider them sides because those are signs of immune activation

Avatar n tn Does "Simvastatin" cause body itching??? I know that one of the side effect of Simvastatin is "itching". I began to use it one week before. But since that, I began to have body itching all over my body. I wonder if it is just a time coincidence, or it is a result of the negative effect of the Simvastatin??
Avatar f tn I have been on cholesterol medicine (simvastatin) for awhile. Last month my doctor upped by dose from 20mg to 40mg. I told him I was having aches and pains, so he took a cpk test for cardiac enzymes. It was normal, so he told me to stay on the 40mg. In fact he said he has stronger cholesterol medicine if he needs to use them. No dr in the past has ever increased the dose past 20mg. Now I have aching in the top of both of my feet, my arm, and my back.
Avatar n tn Have had Hashimoto's disease for many years now. Not until I got on the cholesterol medication Simvastatin did I get Trigeminal Neuralgia. I refuse to take any anti seizure medications, the side effects are to dangerous. I take muscle relaxers and Advil as needed. After taking the statin drug Simvastatin I haven't been the same. I even got to the point that I was breathless. I took myself off the Simvastatin hoping the TN would go away, but it hasn't.
Avatar m tn He said about the amount of tablets i was on and changed two of them for a cheaper version,I was on lansoprazole gastro tabs he then changed them for omeprazole as they were cheaper also i was on atorvastatin he changed me to simvastatin .
Avatar m tn I saw an EENT and he sees nothing wrong with my ears. I also stop taking all my vitamins and simvastatin just to see if that will help. Have you heard of this before. My dose was a childs dose (.5 mg).
Avatar n tn synthroid .125mg/day, simvastatin 20mg/day, hydroxyzine hcl 25mg/as needed for itching, osteo byflex & ASU300 w/sierraSil 600mg. I have changed my workout routine to bikeriding and eliptical from walk/run 4 miles 4 times a week, because of knees. Thank you!!!!
Avatar n tn The only med I am taking is simvastatin (for last 3 years). Recently I have been experiencing a burning and faint itching sensation on my scalp line. I have lost some hair and new hair growth comes in with a crinkly dry texture. My scalp looks healthy and I wash and condition my hair daily. Any ideas.
Avatar n tn I went off the crestor for 5 days to see if the itching quit but I am still itching all over. How long do I have to be off crestor to see if that is what is making me itch? I also get little red bumps, no blisters or anything like that, just tiny bumps and itch horribly. I am ready to scream. any ideas? Help...
Avatar m tn Scratching the areas eases the itching for a while but leaves red irritated skin. I have been taking Simvastatin for 2 years for my high cholesterol and at first thought I may be allergic to the medication but my Dr. says no. My Dr. also says that I am not diabetic in any way but I'm not sure since my father says he has a lower level of diabetes (medically treated). So my questions are...could the cholesterol medication be causing my itch?
Avatar n tn Up to now I had severe flu like side effects and itching. Both had calm already but right now I have my asthma back which was gone for quit some time. ( I am not sure asthma is related to the Peg shots ) Since you are already on your 44 weeks , don't give up now...only 4 more weeks to go. I know it's hard but continue to pray and go week by week.
Avatar f tn My husband took it a year ago when his bilirubin was high and he had severe skin itching. This drug didn't help itching at all and caused some side effects. My hubby felt very weak after he started taking it, had a lot of gas and burped constantly. We stopped taking it after 3 days. Why does your doctor prescribe Welchol for increased cholesterol? What about statins-Lipitor, Crestor? They are not advisable for people with ongoing hepatitis, but if you are SVR there should be no problem.
Avatar m tn Dr's said we'll do a viral load in March and continue with the simvastatin for 1 more month till the draw and consult. They never mentioned a relapse but do the numbers? Any suggestions or ideas? I'm already thinking the worst.
5602432 tn?1370732540 I am nervous after reading about this medication due to the other medications (Seroquel, Imipramine, Savella, Hydroxyzine, Omeprazole, Simvastatin, Ambien, Lorazepam, Furosimide, Meloxicam, Soma, Vicodin - being replaced with Fentanyl Patches) I take even though my Doc says it's fine.
Avatar f tn My plan is to keep monitoring HBSAg levels every 3 months and when i have a decline below 10,000 i'd then start INF. Meanwhile i also take Simvastatin with TNF daily with vitamins. I plan to order Heptech products to help protect my organs from any adverse effect of prolonged treatment with TNF. I wil advise you to also follow that route. Finally, i believe that in the upcomming months, newdrugs which will clear the HBSAg for good will become available.

Avatar m tn If not, Shall I take some medications to assist the process??
Avatar f tn I hope to let you know if the latter is true after I allow time, meditation, and giving it 'no thought' a chance. I'm itching to get back on my bike and get the bpm's up. Will keep you posted.
Avatar f tn my suggestion is start from now with increasing vitamin d to more than 50ng/ml, possibly to the max high normal range 100ng/ml lower cholesterol wtih simvastatin or red yeast rice to total cholesterol <150mg/dl, ldl50mg/dl increase hdl by pantethine and possible liposomal glutathione your doctor may be good but he just follows guideline from what i see here, no personalizations or suggestions according to latest liver conferences.
Avatar n tn I have been using liquid pump soap and find that after prolonged exposure the regional itching returns. I change the soap and the itching goes away. The two current soaps do not specify palm oil in the ingredients so it must be something else in the mix that I become sensitized to over time. Looking for a new bath soap. Laundry soap seems to be okay (sent free, HE All, machine set to second rinse).
152264 tn?1280358257 In September/November 1999 I also developed a sudden extreme sensitivity to high-pitched noises in my good ear, tingling and itching spots in various parts of my body (face, hands, feet, legs), and the painless shocks running in a semicircle around my eye and later into the side of my nose and upper lip, 90 percent on the left but sometimes on the right side. When I first (later) saw a diagram of the trigeminal nerve, I gasped--"those are my shocks!!
Avatar m tn Hi Welcome to the forum! A crawling sensation in skin is seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin (you rule this out) and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. The other possibility is Morgellons disease often mimics scabies. The disease is believed to be caused by weak immune systems in people that have contracted the tick-borne Lyme Disease at some point in their life. It can also be a fungal infection like Tinea corporis.
Avatar f tn How many sufferers are taking statins (Simvastatin)? How many sufferers are taking Atenolol (Tenormin)? How many sufferers also get regular kidney infections?
